Albert was born on 1 Jul 1889 in Weston, Bath. He was the eldest child of Albert Richard Stiles (1862-1950) and Louisa Emma Crane (1869-1932). However, they did not marry until 3 Sep 1893 and so we have to query if Albert was born to another mother, or whether he was born out of wedlock to Louisa at nineteen years-of-age
Albert went on to create his own mystery too, because he had a wife (no data found), with whom he had a son, Albert Stiles, known as ‘Bert’. Later, Albert (the father) married Adeline Violet Hillier (1897-1982) and they had a daughter Violet Evelyn Eileen Stiles (1921-2012) – Jane‘s mother.
Bert’s records are enigmatic too. He first married someone called Wilhelmina or Wilhelmtina. He later divorced or was widowed, and married Linda who had been married before to someone called Goddard. In this first relationship she had a daughter, Linda Goddard. Albert remarried Linda and they themselves had no issue, but raised Linda. ‘Bert’, later altered his surname to Styles, thinking this looked better, when he moved close to Epping Forest, living at Hutton, Brentwood, Essex. When he retired he moved with Linda to Bradford-on-Tone, Wellington, Somerset.
